Raising concern over health, safety and environmental issues in industries in recent years, has resulted in developing integrated Health Safety and Environment Management System (HSEMS) in many organizations including Iranian petroleum and gas related companies. Yet, there was no study on the level of observation and implementation of these guidelines in these industries; therefore, this study was conducted to evaluate the HSE management system in contracting companies of one of the petro-chemistry industries in Iran. This cross-sectional study was conducted among 14 contracting companies and 483 randomly selected workers during 2013. Data collection tool included two forms, first form was related to HSEMS and the second was related to HSE related activities or indicators by workers. This study showed that HSEMS was established well, which is a reflection of the efficient regulatory monitoring of parent company; however, it was not sufficient for preventing injuries and ensuring health and safety of workers.
